    They did a fantastic job with the lodge. Comfy bed, nice seating area with lovely views and local walks. Laura and Mark were on hand to assist with anything and they had left me some lovely goodies for my arrival. I love that some of the local shops allow dogs which made for a positive shopping experience. I’ll definitely be booking again soon and cannot wait to return. Highly recommend. Thank you Laura and Mark.

    May look small from the outside, but clever design and attention to detail make it feel spacious and welcoming inside. Spotlessly clean, and a very well equipped kitchen. Choice of private areas to sit outside and enjoy the peace, when it wasn't raining! Photos online do not do this place justice, it really is something quite special . Highly recommend, and I am sure we will return. Our dog enjoyed her stay too!

  • "Superbly located - on the fringe of Cheltenham yet quiet and secluded as if deep in the countryside - and good quality accommodation."

    I was particularly impressed by its own private garden- raised and split level - with great views to the green hills in the middle and far distance. I thoroughly enjoyed my week and hope to be back there some time in the future. Excellent value for money.

  • "This was our second time of staying."

    we very rarely return to any holiday let but were very impressed with this one. Its quiet and comfortable and is an idea location for visiting the Cotswolds and NT houses. We only mentioned in passing that the light bulb in the standard lamp had packed up and we were duly presented with a new one. We don't think anything would be to much trouble for Laura but we suspect you could come and go without even seeing them. The hens eggs were a treat.

  • "The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed for a relaxing break from work."

    The location was perfect for cheltenham and the surrounding Cotswold towns. We had a lovely stay and really enjoyed sitting outside on the top deck when we had the rare sunny days! The surroundings of the cottage are lovely and it’s so nice to see the farm life every day. Even though the access to the cottage is shared with the owners, this does not effect any privacy at all if people were concerned about sharing the driveway. We loved meeting little Herbie who greeted us and our dog when we came back. Would definitely visit again, thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "I had a lovely week at the lodge, it's the perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds."

    Although the owners live by the lodge they weren't intrusive but there if you need anything. The garden area was fine for what I/my dog needed but it may not be suitable for all dogs as the fence at one side is quite low(could be jumped over easily). Would definitely go back to the lodge again though!

We will definitely be re-booking.

  • "Wellinghill Lodge was immaculate, everything was very clean."

    The furniture was very comfortable, particularly the bed, we both sleep really well. The only thing we hadn’t realised was that it didn’t have a wardrobe, but actually that wasn’t a major issue as there were a few hangers and hanging places in the bedroom which we used. We didn’t hear much noise from the livery at all, or the farm so it was a lovely peaceful holiday. The owners were both very pleasant. We feel that we were very lucky to find this little gem, especially as we booked so late. Thank you, we returned home feeling very relaxed.

    The lodge is just down the road from the town centre and there is a gorgoues walk 5 minute drive away next to the Indian takeout. With two tracks long and short which is great to do for a early morning stroll with your dog. Cannop ponds and sculpture trail are only 45 minute drive away. Woth Cheltenham town centre very close by although we did that much walking we didn’t visit here. The lodge is great. Lots of animals close by horses and chickens! Very clean and so quiet. No traffic noise just nature. The only thing we missed was a DVD player. We bought plently of games to play on the decking area and it was peaceful in the evenings to relax and get ready for the next day.

    She gave me the code to enter online and I approved and paid directly. It was only later that I realised it is on the edge of Cheltenham! However it was a safe and easy run up the M5 that suited me better and the property was wonderful. I hadn't been able to find somewhere near the Vale of the White Horse that would take 2 whippet dogs - so was surprised that I had missed this location - and that is the case, but I had a very good break in the Cotswolds!
